Welcome to St Philip Howard Catholic Primary School.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to St Philip Howard Catholic School website. We hope that you will find it interesting and informative.
Our school is a Catholic school and this means that God is at the centre of all aspects of life. Christ’s love is reflected in all the decisions that we make as a school community and all that occurs in our school.
We aim to create a school where all children are recognised as unique individuals with unique needs and are helped to develop their skills and talents to the best of their ability. We have high expectations of all members of our school community and create an environment that strives for excellence in both achievements and behaviour.
We believe that children learn best when they feel happy and secure and aim to create such an atmosphere in our school. We believe that learning should be stimulating, creative, enjoyable and fun.
We understand that you, as parents and carers, are the primary educators of your children and believe that together we work in partnership to allow your children to achieve their potential. We hope that we will ensure that everyone’s contribution to the life of our school is valued and appreciated.
We are closely linked to the two parishes of St Peter’s and Marychurch and celebrate being part of a wider faith community.
We have a wonderful school with extremely hardworking and caring staff and Governors who are passionate about helping our children achieve their potential. I hope that we will be able to work together inpartnership to enable our school to continue to develop as a community that reflects the teachings of the Gospels, strives for excellence, recognises the contributions of all and treats everyone fairly and with dignity and respect.
